North Carolina Exploration and Information
North Carolina has several great resources to help you learn about its past. One of my favorite sites is www.HomegrownHandmade.org with a listing of many trails that will take you all over the state.
With trail names like, “Front Porch to Back Forty”, “Burning Rubber and Riding the Rails”, and “Crossroads, PatriArts, and Native Ways”, there is sure to be something for everyone.
One of the nicest parts of this site is there are no set routes, and with the amount of information there, you’re bound to find something you’re interested in.
If you’d like a planned route, visit www.ncdot.org/public/publications for information on North Carolina’s scenic byways. Using the byways when you’re traveling through the state is a great way to get off the interstate and see more of the towns and countryside.
